Hi all,

I'm using CVSNT server on windows as local server with Eclipse. I created a project and and use ANT script for building the project.
Now this ANT script creates some directories like "build", "dist", "docs", "logs", etc. Now I want to add this files into .cvsigonre but it doesn't have any effect. Why this weired behavior ?

Any inputs?

First, make sure you spell it right. It's ".cvsignore", not ".cvsigonre". Since you spelled it that way twice, I'm thinking you didn't just mis-type the name.

Secondly, you have to set up the ignore list before you check any of the children under those directories, because once checked in, CVS will continue to descend into the directories.

Sorry for the spell mistake,I'll be more cautious from the next time.

OK, any remedy/hack for this?
